International 240 or Farmall 240

Recommended Posts

I have asked a few people about this. This tractor is up for sale... says Farmall 240 but has international badges and 240 utility badges. Guy says it was a Chisholm Ryder conversion but I know very little about them. Does this seem legit? Or just a made up thing?

Most of the Chisolm Rider conversion tractors came yellow without emblems. So, they may have been added later when someone painted it red and white again.

Oh... now that makes a bit of sense then... maybe the guy had a 240 utility donor tractor...

or didn't know/care what emblems he used.

my 240 was also a Chisholm Ryder tractor. SN 614    CR601J.  it was painted red and white over the yellow when I bought it. no emblems, but all kinds of hydraulics. it was used as a spray tractor with saddle tanks that I took off. Added the fast hitch, ROPS, and emblems.

CR tractors extracted from their machines tend to be missing features, and/or certain things tend to be cobbled together. Usually centered around the operator's platform and hitch areas because the harvester machines had their own operator's platform, and no need of a hitch.

There was a 656 Hydro removed from a CR harvester auctioned off here early in the year. The entire operator's platform was a cob job. Whoever rescued the tractor installed a flat plate for a transmission top and deck. Hydraulic controls were a bank of generic open center valves fed by a line from the transmission and the return dumped into a hole drilled into the plate under the seat. It was obvious that they converted this one back into a tractor on a budget and as quickly as possible.

Oh yeah, and it had rusty Oliver 50-series fenders on it, installed backwards.

You can get all the parts and they will bolt on, but it's usually a matter of cost and finding the parts.

Looks like the swinging drawbar that was available on those tractors without 3 point or fast hitch.   I think I may see the rear drawbar support for the 2 piece drawbar under the rear end housing,  interesting.
